UK University Reveals Why Nigerian Certificates Have No Value

Certificates obtained outside Nigeria will continue to be more valued and considered over those obtained in the country due to some factors, the United Kingdom-based Metropolitan School of Business and Management, has said.




Among the reasons adduced for the value placed on foreign certificates by the institution include “use of dynamic and relevant practice-based approaches” and the combination of corporate experience with “interactive teaching methodology with live case studies”.

The Assistant Country Director of MSBM (Nigeria), Mosisiye Kayode, stated this in Abuja during the Enterprise 101 workshop organised for business managers, young professionals and aspiring entrepreneurs.

She said, “We have affiliations with schools in the UK but anyone participating in our school in Abuja has worked, studied and lived in the UK at a particular time because you cannot give what you do not have. So anyone who is going to teach in our class is someone who has studied, worked and lived in the UK .



“If you have a certificate from the UK, it is more appreciated because they know that we don’t just give you the teaching, we give you the real life scenario.

Of course our certificates have no value when parents and student buy them. Sometimes when speaking to a graduate, I can't believe they attualy went to university!!! "Smh"

My own reason is that majority of Nigerian graduates are empty brains that sort their lecturers through money or by sex to pass!...
None of my kids will attend a university here..
God forbid!...

Dumbass...didn't you just read the reason behind it?

@ I am the queen and boss of this blog, speak for yourself. I worked hard for my grades in school and my friends did the same . I'm sure many people have worked hard for their certificates. You posting this would not encourage those going through challenges in school to work hard. No university undergraduate student is an empty brain !

Well, they made sense but it should not be applicable in all cases, but it is, due to our preference for anything foreign. In Nigeria for instance, some one can study Yoruba education in US and will be given preference to the person that studied Yoruba education in Ife.

sisi eko said...

A case of when the school doesn't pass through you. Many students can't even defend their degrees these days. So I blame them NOT.

OK bye

sisi eko said...

That's the problem. Sad but true

More money for their economy. So they open their mouth and discredit Nigerian certificates. If Nigerians will stop wasting money to go there, afterall they won't give you opportunity to work or stay after your education. To me schooling abroad is a waste of money if you are not a citizen of that country.

Chikito The Professional Fire for Fire said...

The day I said I promised myself never to do my Masters in Nigeria after my first degree, they came for me 'Chikito is proud' 'she's bragging' 'Are u saying nigerian masters deg. doesn't have value?'

Well what I know is I've studied in Nigeria and a abroad and the difference is CLEAR. Remember the first time i wrote reflective essay. I was like: wetin be this? 😂😂 who dey reflect when i did my BSc? Na test or assignment and exam. Now the question of who gets a better job with the degree is on God because the bible says: The race isn't to the swift.

My advice is: if you wanna get a foreign degree, do it because you want to invest in yourself. Don't do it because you think it will get you a better job instantly. The jobs and opportunities will come if you can recognise them when they do oh. Your primary focus should be self-investment. It is an investment that lasts forever. As for those of you who started schooling abroad at younger ages..... you don't know what God did for you. Better use your opportunities well. That's why when I see most of them dropping out of uni halfway or not going at all I Smh. Wey better education dey with student loan. Nigeria we pay all our fees, no busary or loan yet you still get half-baked graduates.

I spent 5 years in Ibadan obtaining a degree.
It is only when I went to America, that I discovered I had wasted my time in UI.

This doesn't apply to everyone pls. Some people actually read and worked hard for their certificate.

Its their opinion though.

They do have a point though. That's why Nigerians undergo certain certificate or diploma courses before they get jobs over there.

That is not what they are saying here. We only do theory in our nigeria university without learning how to apply it in real situation of life.

Anonymous said...

This is not true. When you take your certificate overseas they value it. If you have a B grade in nigeria, America may consider it an A because they know how tough our schooling is . The guy was just trying to sell his market

Mr Sabi Finish said...

I don't blive Nigeria University Certificates has any issues. The problem is with the Nigerian people. For more than 50yrs we have had over a million Nigerians graduate from UK and other foreign universities, what have they contributed to Nigeria? Rather what they do is to come secure the better jobs and embezzle alot of money frm d system.

I am telling you, even those in medicine field.

You are one of the reasons they don't value our certificates, when you can't write to even save your life, yet you are a graduate.

Yellow Sisi,go and ask that question to the imbecile that gave birth to you!...

LOLLAH said...

Employers in naija would be more interested in applicants with Western country certificates than Naija because It's easier to verify than our own. The Naija school might be on strike or just might not be accredited.
And some of our products are just sub standard like poor command of English, low self esteem and disrespectful behaviors etc and how do you defend such certificates?

LOLLAH said...

Anon 11:32 why call her that? You are an example of a bad product of a Nigerian University

I almost fell for it too Lin Lin. Don't bother yourself replying.

When Nigerian graduates plus lecturers sef don't know the difference between budge and bulge, am and I am, thumb and thump How dem certificate go get value. When corrected they will ask u "who English epp". Not mention how unimaginative they are, na only copy and paste them sabi.

Nigerians forever feeling inferior to the white man. Living abroad having schooled in Nigeria I bring a lot to the table and my employers see me as an asset. I thank my dad for investing in a good education and giving me the best where my education was concerned. The person who went to UI, what were you studying for 5 years, surely you left with a tiny bit of knowledge. You can't be dumb enough to have graduated with an empty brain.

Please try if you can. Or do online -even though that doesn't give any classroom experience.

You are a fool. I studied abroad. It's not worth it if you spend so much and cannot work or gain experience. It's better to either go for masters or certificate course abroad.

Chikito The Professional Fire for Fire said...

@BJ Bonji 😂😂😂 my sentiments exactly. But not as harsh though.

Most Nigerians hate the truth that is why nobody is bold enough to track Buhari down and find out where he is and if he is still breathing!

Some Nigerians graduated with degrees in computer science and mechanical engineering for example and they cannot fix cars while there were no modern computers at the time some of them graduated.

Universities need more funding not more graduates like these... Another problem is Mr Lecturer who fails female students who refuse to date him. My friends Military father had to send some soldiers to a university with a verbal warning before his daughter graduated after a year of failure!

Anonymous said...

Their system is different and they don't rely on degrees but experience in most cases in the UK unlike the US. Most of them are not as educated as Nigerians but they are better trained to the jobs they do. Training on the job is continuous unlike Nigeria.

For example, people don't claim to be bored at work, and sell pants and bra at work in order to make ends meet. There is enough work to do and it is hard work to the extent that when you close, you will thank God. Nigeria is behind in that area of expertise e.g., customer services. I cannot call any Nigerian Ministry for equires! Backward nation.
